Présentation de l'éditeur

As Shanghai modernizes and seeks acceptance as an international city, buildings and neighbourhoods that were once preserved "by accident" are now being purposefully demolished. Phantom Shanghai is a spectacular photographic journe through the Shanghai that is unlikely to survive the vision of its own future. Since 1998, Greg Girard has been photographing the effect of this transformation on the buildings, shopsn homes, neighbourhoods and inhabitants of China's largest city.

Biographie de l'auteur

Greg Girard is a Canadian photographer who has spent much of his life in Asia. While living in Hong Kong, he published City of Darkness with Ina Lambot, a record in photographs and text of the final years of the Kowloon Walled City. He lives in Shangai.

This is NOT William Gibson's Book; Give the Real Author the Top Billing He Deserves 9 juillet 2007
Par David Pandt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
It's downright scandalous that Amazon gives William Gibson top billing for this book. "Phantom Shanghai" is GREG GIRARD's book through-and-through, a brilliant 224-page urban photo essay of the highest standard.

I have lived in Shanghai for the past 7-plus years and have walked among the deeply felt images captured by Girard. His stunning photos are amazing in not just their stark clarity, but that they refuse stand in judgment of this city, and its wanton destruction in an unrestrained grab for riches. In this sense, "Phantom Shanghai" is aptly titled: a true apparition of a unique period that will mark, perhaps even haunt, Shanghai for years to come.

While William Gibson penned the foreword to "Phantom Shanghai", by all accounts, he's never even been here, to the world's most overrated city.

I searched the Amazon website high and low trying to find a way to send an email voicing my displeasure at their essentially crediting this title to Gibson, but as with most once consumer friendly corporations these days, they make it virtually impossible to contact any actual person who might handle such consumer complaints.

If anybody at Amazon catches a glimpse of this commentary, I ask you to find a way to do right by the true author of "Phantom Shanghai", Greg Girard, and give him the lead billing he deserves for this book.

Breathtaking 15 juillet 2007
Par Driver9 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I almost completely agree with the other reviewers, including the outrageous mis-attribution of the author. The book is by Greg Girard, and only a short, and slightly hyper, forward belongs to Gibson.

As for the images, they are among the most haunting and beautiful you will ever see of an urban landscape. I believe the book is a masterpiece. This is made even more poignant by the fact that much (all?) of what was photographed is now gone. This is made even more glaring by the extraordinary size and, for me, vulgarity, of what has become the new Shangai. While the photographs themselves may make no indictment, I felt that the new skyline of Shanghai indicts itself by its sheer massive ugliness and by its blind march into the future. The only good news is that the skyscrapers are just as susceptible to the wrecking ball.

Ghosts of a Magnificent Past 24 décembre 2007
Par Magali - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Most of us won't get to Shanghai in time to see the faded remains of its former glory before they're devoured by the crass forces of "progress." So run, do not walk, to purchase this superb collection of images, taken and commented upon by people sensitive to the beauty of this city.

Phantom Shanghai 28 mai 2008
Par Vicki A. Baroco - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book is haunting. I expected photos of old buildings of different use and type. I did not expect the personal space photographs and the artful way they were presented. I did not expect the photographs to be so beautiful and so emotional. I guess what I'm trying to say is that this book is art, not information. I love this book!

PHANTOM SHANGHAI REVIEW 23 décembre 2007
Par Steven Tishkoff - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
IT IS A PLEASURE TO GET AQUAINTED WITH A BOOK OF PHOTOGRAPHS THAT CAN TRANSPORT YOURSELF INTO ANOTHER TIME OR DIMENSION. THIS BOOK DOES SO. AND VERY WELL PHOTOGRAPHED AT THAT. DARK, SURREAL, AND QUITE FRANKLY PHANTASMAGORICAL. I ENCOURAGE ANYONE INTERESTED IN PHOTOGRAPHY AS AN ART FORM OR AS A DOCUMENTRY METHOD OF RECORDING LIFE AROUND US, PARTICULARLY AN EVER EVOLVING CHINA, TO TAKE A CHANCE ON THIS BOOK. ENJOY
